About the property

Modern Detached 1 Bed ADU (small House), Open Living Space, Cozy Bedroom

The Backyard Bungalow is a newly constructed modern detached ADU (aka small house) in prime SE location, with 16 ft vaulted ceilings, spacious open-plan living area, sky-lit bedroom and modern bathroom. An ideal space and location for couple's, visiting parents, families or business travelers. Walking distance to Division St. restaurants and cafes, food carts, shops, parks and playgrounds, as well as a "biker's paradise", just off Clinton St.

The Backyard Bungalow fits snugly behind the main house, yet once inside, feels amazingly spacious. As you enter, from its private pathway, you walk into an sunlit open-plan kitchen, dining and living space, with skylights, a comfy sofa, TV and reading area, dining table (for 4-6 pp), large wooden kitchen island with bar stools, stainless steel appliances (inc. dishwasher), gas range, fully equipped kitchen, and french doors onto private garden patio. Patio and garden area offer a small but pet-friendly enclosed space (FYI planters are only 2 ft high so not likely to stop a large dog jumping them!).

Tucked away in the back is a 12' x 13' sky-lit bedroom, with a queen bed, walk-in closet and private entry to a beautiful little garden space. The bathroom offers modern elegant convenience, with glass and tiled shower (no tub) and washer/dryer. Good quality sofa bed (with foam topper) and twin air mattress are available, as well as a pack'n'play (crib) for kiddos (email to request). Sheets, blankets, towels etc all on-site.

Basic kitchen supplies will be left in the kitchen, along with coffee machine and French press. All systems brand new, including heat pump/air conditioning. Plenty of street parking available right outside. Bungalow is single level and accessible without stairs (via patio entrance).

Given the location (Bike Score = 94), off Clinton Bike Boulevard and 15 minutes to Downtown, two vintage style bicycles are available for guests (minus the odd service interruption). Locks provided. No helmets. It's worth noting, this is early days for The Backyard Bungalow and its hosts (i.e. us), so we're learning as we go. All suggestions welcome.

A very well thought out unit - we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came with our 2 young boys and we absolutely loved it. The space was well thought out and it was amazing! The spot was super clean, super convenient, and our kids slept on the bed while we slept on the air mattress. It was super comfortable. They thought of all the extra details such as plentiful towel hooks in the bathroom, additional towels, a stool for the kids, an all-in-one charger for multiple devices....and the list goes on. The unit was separate from the main living quarters and it was quite private. We would love to come back and stay here again! Thanks!

A perfect solution!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay at this well cared for and thoughtfully designed 1 bedroom house. The kitchen is well furnished and we could cook and serve dinner for four. This area of Portland lacks hotels and this bungalow was perfectly situated for visiting our son. Neighborhood was very quiet, street parking was available right in front of walkway to house. We are glad we stayed here. Would return and would recommend.
